In January I shared that one of my goals for the year was to include a home tour on this little bloggity blog. Well, that was before I knew I would be spending months chasing adoption paperwork so the home tour has been put on the back burner. Instead I decided to share a little home tour preview today.
There is nothing I love more than peeking through other’s homes. We have been working hard on some changes around here and I want to take a moment to brag on the hubby. When I have a vision of some crazy home project he always comes through and makes my vision a reality. He’s like my very own Chip Gaines, but with less hair 😉
The Boys’ Room
With Collins coming home soon, it was time to move Anderson into Owen’s room. A shared room deserved a mini-makeover. We are still working on the finishing touches, but the focal point is by far the amazing wood wall and reading lights Shane installed.
I’m telling you, he’s good.
A Room for Collins
Next up we are changing Anderson’s old room into a room fit for our new Peanut. It is also still a work in progress, but today you get a sneak peak.
You know what I’m learning here? I have a serious pillow problem
I’ve shared our kitchen face-lift before, but I’m still amazed at what some white paint and new flooring can do.
I recently added this little table to an unused corner of the living room and I’m excited to see how it works as a place to store all of Q’s art and craft supplies.
For Mother’s Day they surprised me with the piece on my dining room table. I have been eyeing it ever since visiting Magnolia Market.
In a house with very little wall space, simple spray painted cubbies to stash homework and a bucket to catch shoes make for a great landing zone right inside the garage door. Even if it is in the dining room.
I’m a firm believer in having your powder room make a statement. Bye bye old dark paisley wall paper. Hello bright pink!
If you visit, make sure you sign the bathroom guestbook . (Yes, it’s a real thing.)
Front Porch Sittin’
Back Porch Living
We bought this house because we fell in love with the back porch.
A Basement in progress
Prior to deciding to add to our family again through adoption this year, the basement was number one on our project list. Shane managed to ship-lap the TV wall, but the rest of the project is currently on hold until we get Collins home.
The well loved piano will be receiving a fresh coat of paint. What color should it be???
If only it always looked this way…
BE THE LIGHT and help bring Collins home.
Linking up for Show and Tell Tuesday.
